Artist: Enda Burke’s work explores themes of family and catholic iconography in contemporary Ireland, allowing humour and integrity to shine through the mundane. “I am particularly drawn to the monotony associated with working class life and how small details of colour and play can become marvels in monotonous settings.
When the strict measures were introduced in Ireland in March I decided to take portraits of my parents during lockdown. These images are taken using nostalgia, humor and catholic iconography as a form of escapism from the stress of lockdown.”
